Our Alma Mater, Great and True

Last night my high school alma mater, Irmo High, won the boys basketball state championship. Go Irmo! While high school wasn't the greatest time of time for me, it was absolutely horrible either, and it definitly helped me grow into the person I am today. My brother was also involved in the basketball program during his years at IHS, so I couldn't help but be excited for my alma mater and our lovely song came to my head...sung to no other than the tune of "O Christmas Tree."

"Our alma mater, great and true
Loyal praise we sing to you;
And to Thee, ever shall we stress
All our love and gratefulness.
We treasure dear, our school days there;
For Irmo High, we breath a prayer.
We'll ever call our memories back
Hail to our dear gold and black!"
